Photos from "VI Encuentro Miniaturismo San Lorenzo de El Escorial"

As always, after the weekend of the event, here you have photos of the miniatures and the awards. I prepared some photos of the Fantasy section of the contest that I could fo thanks to being part of the judges and because I had access to all the pieces of the event.

First of all, here are the categories of the Fantasy section:
  • D1: Less than 54mm
  • D2: 54mm and over 54mm
  • D3: Vehicles
  • D4: Scenes and dioramas
  • D5: Scratch and heavy transformations (painted miniatures were accepted but only sculpture was judged)

And now the photos of those miniatures that received award or were part of the awarded displays. They were done with my mobile phone and with a terrible light (the one of the event) so please forgive the quality (specially the authors). You can click on them to see them bigger.

Diego Esteban's diorama "Any Problem?", which you will probably remember from Chicago's Crystal Brush where it got the second prize (a juicy reward of $2,000) was for me the best entry of the Fantasy section, and of the whole contest. However, the judges team voted and decided democratically that the Best of Show should go to a diorama from the Historical section, completely scratch built. Here you have some photos of details that I could take from both entries.
And that was it, the "VI Encuentro de Miniaturismo de San Lorenzo de El Escorial". More next year? :)

PS: Do you like the new photo layout for events? Do you prefer this new one or the way I posted photos in the past? Please give me your feedback because what you say will probably determine whether I will post photos like this or how I did before!
